Well.. while breakfast was on target, I forgot how long the eye appointments take so went "out" for lunch and did not make a good choice.. I am calling it a cheat meal as I am back on track tonight with chicken thighs, zucc's with dressing and a small sweet potato.
Eye appt was great for me, NO CHANGE- whoop!! Lily was not so lucky. She has a problem with her eyes she has had forever. One eye is a little near sighted and the other is EXTREMELY far sighted. So, one lens is REALLY thick. During the initial intake by the nurse discovered she is seeing double much of the time. She never said anything!! This would explain her headaches. So, there are some exercises for her eyes we will need to do. I go back in next week to get the tool to do this for her. Poor kid just can not catch a break.
So, I had to exchange my mower a couple weeks ago and yesterday finally had some time and energy to mow the lawn. I go get it out of the box thinking that I just need to attach the handlebars.. ummmm no. Its in pieces and the directions are in spanish. Yeah.. So, I hauled it back to trusty walmart and had they assemble. Getting it back in the car assembled was a lesson in creativity. But now I know it will work in the future.
After I dropped off the mower, I headed to moms to pick up stuff for the garage sale next Sat. I can not believe its almost here. This is crunch week gathering as much as possible. I have a sneaking suspicion that there will be more than one sale. Anyway, The car is taking a hiatus from the garage while I stash the goods. Lily can not bear to part with anything of her own so is having a concession stand. It is not a primal stand that is for sure. She is selling ice cold sodas, maybe some donuts/cookies. Her friend wants to make brownies to sell as well. More power to them i say. My goal is to make enough money from the sale to buy a gas grill. I miss the grill at moms house and KNOW I would use it often all year long.
Well.. waiting for the sun to go down a bit so I can mow the flippin' yard. I really hate sweat.
